Teatro plans grand opening for ‘La Galeria’
Thursday, April 19, 2018
While there has always been a space at the Teatro de Artes de Juan Seguin’s Cultural Arts Center for artists to showcase their work, the local organization has finally decided to officially recognize it.
The Teatro board hosted the grand opening of “La Galería,” along with a lecture by artist Rey Luján Gaytan whose work is currently on display in the space, 921 W. New Braunfels St.
“’La Galería’ is the first room when you walk into Teatro’s Cultural Arts Center,” Teatro de Artes executive director Yvonne De La Rosa said. “’La Galería’ is usually the first area or room in a building. It is a covered or enclosed area used by merchants or organizations to exhibit or sell items. The room has been used for exhibits, lectures and programs during the past 20 years; however, during a Teatro board meeting, the members choose to baptize this room as ‘La Galeria’ or gallery.”
